LUDINGTON — Trailing 1-0 early, the Ludington boys soccer team came back to take a 2-1 victory in the West Michigan Conference over North Muskegon at home Monday night.

It was the Oriole’s 11th straight win, pushing their record to 17-1-1 overall and 9-0 in the conference with one game remaining.

North Muskegon’s only goal came on a penalty kick 13 minutes into the game. but the Orioles answered 14 minutes later on a goal by Mason Verstrat from Spencer Holmes to tie the game, 1-1.

Holmes put the Orioles ahead for good, 2-1 with a goal four minutes later on an assist from Parker Wendt.

It was a scoreless second half, although the Orioles had several other chances that came close, hitting the crossbar two or three times.

“It was a high paced game, with a lot of transition back and forth,” said Ludington head coach Kris Anderson. “North Muskegon played us tough, and put some pressure on our back line.

“You need those things to get you ready for post-season, and it was a good game for us. We got behind, but kept our poise and composure.”
